    You have a link to the job posting? I know my little brother is looking for work. He's on contract with the VA right now. It's expiring soon, and they're not re-upping any of their IT contractors.

    Message me his email and I can refer the job to him. Get him to write a few sentences for the why this guy is good section. A referral generally means the resume gets looked at by a human instead of just the search engine they use. If he wants to take a look at Altrias career website there should be several IT jobs listed.

    I dont have any experience in any of that.. but i have 10 years experience in IT related field. Does that mean I can get minimum salary? I can learn pretty fast.

    I have these. They are super crazy bright. Almost to the fact that they wash out my backup camera.. I 75% recommend them. But you might need that harness from @Puppypunter that cuts them off when you are in reverse

    Replaced tensioner pulley today. Also replaced AC clutch, but it didnt resolve my no AC problem. Anyone have a shop they recommend for AC service? Id probably need leakdown check and recharge. I know of GT Peace in Chantilly, but would rather not go farther east than that.. so somewhere in Chantilly/Herndon/Sterling

    I'm not really and AC expert, but as far as recharge, thats not too difficult to do on your own if you want to save some cash. I did it, and I'm practically a caveman. I followed this chrisfix video, and it was pretty straight forward. Only needed the Manifold gauges and vacuum pump (which I rented), x2 r134a cans w/ dye that I got from Walmart for $6/each, a refrigerant can tap, and a scale. Total cost to me was less than $20 and probably 3 hrs. Most of the time was the leakdown part just holding a vacuum for an hr or two

    OK thanks. I might try it. But someone else recommended me their shop charged ~$90, so i figured it was worth that..

    It was a lot simpler than I anticipated, but $90 doesn't sound terrible

    I've got a few pictures and additional things I learned from the job documented if you're interested. The recharge stuff is at the bottom, should be able to link down there from the top of the page:

    Yeah I had those on my old bumper, but the current bumper won't work for them unless I drill a bunch more holes:

    I've narrowed down the UCAs to SPC and JBA. Right now I'm leaning toward SPC for the adjustability in the control arm to maximize alignment angles. Has anyone had any issues with them getting out of alignment when wheeling due to a hard bump? That's the only negative thing I've read about them, but my take is that's probably a pretty rare occurrence.
